New Chelsea signing Leo Castledine has compared his style to that of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount and Aston Villa's Jack Grealish.

Castledine told BBC Sport about his himself just before signing for Chelsea from Wimbledon FC.

“I am an all-action goal-scoring midfielder who drives well with the ball,” he said.

“Moving from defence to midfield was a very gradual process for me. It took about two seasons. I was a tough-tackling centre-back at the start of my U13 season and now, towards the end of U15 season, I am a centre midfielder and sometimes play as a number 10.”

Castledine also named Mount and Grealish as his favourite players and players that he shares similar styles with.

“I dribble and create chances just like Grealish, but I am very similar to Mason Mount,” Castledine said.

Chelsea signed 14-year-old Leo Castledine from AFC Wimbledon, after beating off the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United.
